Chiropractic Helps to Optimize Pregnancy

prenatalDuring pregnancy, one of the most prominent hormones released is relaxin. This potent chemical allows the joints of the body, particularly in the pelvis, to soften and expand in preparation for the upcoming birth. This change often leads to hypermobility of these joints. Because of this tendency, it’s vital to maintain optimal alignment to benefit both mother and child. These are some of the common pregnancy symptoms that regular adjustment can help moms to avoid:

  • Back and leg pain
  • Constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Heartburn
  • Tight muscles

The Webster Technique

This adjustment method allows a specific chiropractic analysis of the pelvis to optimize the environment of the unborn baby. Proper alignment of the pelvic region gives the baby adequate space to move, and helps to avoid breech positioning. This technique has also been known to decrease labor time by up to 40%. It invites a smoother, healthier experience for both mom and baby.

These are some of the comments that we hear on a regular basis from our pregnant patients that get adjusted regularly:

“I wish I had done this when I was pregnant with my other kids!”

“I feel better now, one week from giving birth, than I did when I was 10 weeks along!”

“I don’t feel miserable like I did when I was pregnant before; I’m up, moving and active!”

We spend a lot of time preparing our pregnant patients for the birth process, as well as letting them know what to expect afterward. We advise them on the best course of action to take in securing the health of their newborn. At their request, we can also connect them to those in the community who could be of additional help: midwives, doulas or lactation specialists.
